France: Jean Galfione: Pole Vault


It's always interesting to keep up with our sports heroes, even after they've retired from competition, e.g. legendary pole vaulter Jean Galfione.  

He's still very much into athletics these days, eighteen years after his Olympic gold medal performance.  And, his current passion is promoting the Crossfit movement in France.  

In addition to that, he is an avid sailor.  

Who could not be inspired?
